TSC Bans Manual Replacement Of Teacher Registration Certificates
The Teachers Service Commission, has officially banned manual replacement of Teacher registration certificates for teachers.
According to the TSC CEO Nancy Macharia, manual replacement of TSC registration certificates will not work and the move is part of its 2019-2023 strategic Plan aimed to enhance efficiency in service delivery.
In lts 2019-2023 Strategic Plan, the TSC identified reforms and Innovation in the provision of teaching services as its strategic focus area aimed at improving service delivery to s employees and stakeholders.
Following this move, it has successfully migrated services related to replacement of lost registration certificates for teachers to an online platform.
Henceforth, Teachers who lose their certificates of registration will apply for replacement through the online portal on the TSC website.
Since 2019, TSC has moved a number of services to an online platform. Some of the services accessible from the online platform include leave application, transfer application and teacher employment process.
After registration teachers are issued with a registration certificate which bears the teachers’ TSC number and other details.
The certificate act as evidence of teacher registration. However, after registration most teachers fail to receive their registration certificates through the postal address they provide during registration.This has led to most certificates being returned to the Commission. Teachers who lost or failed to receive their certificates used to apply for a replacement manually.
Last year TSC released a list of 11,191 certificates of registration that were returned to the Commission.
